    Forest re-opened today, around 2 PM, I believe. Looking at the forecast, you should have perfect conditions, assuming no rain Monday or Tuesday next week.

    Careful with downed sticks and branches out there for a bit. Lots of derailleur-eaters on the ground right now. Mine was safe, but got some crap tangled up in my brake rotor. Some arm to leg-sized branches down scattered about. Nothing completely blocking anything on what I rode today (Burnt Mtn, Cedar Mtn, Big Rock), but a number of them poking out into the corridor 1/4 to 1/2 across the trail.

    Some of the roads are still pretty wet. Sections of Corn Mill Shoals, especially, are like riding through shallow creeks right now. Solid trail tread, but under a little bit of water.

    Lots of practice bunny hopping isolated muddy spots, too.

    Thanks for posting. Hoping to get up there next Sunday or Monday. Even if it doesn't rain after tomorrow one of my favorite trails (Turkey Knob) will still have areas of mud. Honestly, that trail is always damp in certain areas but goodness these past few months have brought incredible amounts of rain.

    Dupont now has a new website:

    https://www.dupontstaterecreationalforest.com

    Trail status will be updated on the main page, below the menu. It can't be overlooked.

    Clicked the link, there is no notice about trail closures below the menu tabs. So, are the trails open?

    Hmmm. Apparently it only appears when they are closed. It was an orange bar saying trails are closed. I'll suggest they make it show status when open, which would make it clear.

    Just finished a night ride tonight. Lots of low hanging stuff on the trails on the Corn Mill side. Lower Burnt has a bunch on the non-gnar side, gnar side has one blocking the trail about middle of the descent in the chunk. A few downed tree messes on Pine Tree and Cascade we tried to clear best we could. At least a few soft spots on every trail. The water and snow melt definitely moved stuff around: lots of rocks moved about. Some sections were still quite loose and leafy since there has been little traffic on the trails.
